Cleatis Allen Jr Stand Up
First Joke: This one is for you, Mom. I went to a department store with my mother and her and friend they were walking around shopping. My mom was looking at this dress that was yellow with polka dots. She said, “Hey Gwen, is this dress too loud?” As a 7 year old I said, I didn’t hear it say nothing. That’s when I knew I had to do this comedy thing.
Comedic Start: It’s weird how I started my career. I was heavy in the Church as a little kid and I would get a scripture then find a way to make it funny. I fell in love with acting then said let me try stand up for a while. I’ve been doing it ever since. I got addicted to it because the acting jobs were too hard to get. With comedy you don’t have to take a drug test or nothing.
Comedic Style: I started off in the church, so I know the good jokes. I tell the church jokes, but I still put that edge on it, so I know how far to take it.
The Unwritten Rules to Cheating: Don’t get caught! Don’t get on Facebook and don’t take pictures. It’s really more than one unwritten rule it’s a bunch of written rules. Don’t change your status on Facebook because you can just watch a relationship fall apart on Facebook. People don’t even have to know you and they are like, you know James and Keisha broke up today it was horrible. Don’t mess with Facebook.
